NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

The NOPD is investigating a single-car crash that left one man dead and a woman injured.

On Wednesday at around 1:30 p.m., officers responded to a traffic cash in the 7200 block of Chef Menteur Highway. During the initial investigation, officers learned that the female driver of a white Toyota Corolla was traveling westbound on Chef Menteur when for unknown reasons she side-swiped a utility pole on the driver's side and another one on the passenger’s side.

The unidentified front seat passenger, who was wearing a seat belt, was pronounced dead on the scene. EMS brought the driver to the hospital. Her condition is unknown.

Blood and alcohol tests are pending and the investigation is ongoing.       

Traffic Fatality Investigator Edgar Edwards is in charge of the investigation and can be reached at (504) 658-6237.
